Structure of trading department:

There are three traders. Jack Poulson is the head trader. He has say over what we do, and he comes up with a lot of ideas. We're trading a lot in the Canadian market. I do a lot of Treasury notes and futures, but it's not broken up; we can trade what we think is a good opportunity.
